A new popular pair is coming to Oz! Broadway veteran Carrie St. Louis (Rock of Ages) and former O-Town member Ashley Parker Angel will star as Glinda and Fiyero, respectively, in the North American tour of Wicked. St. Louis and Angel will join the production on November 26 in Norfolk, VA.
St. Louis most recently appeared on Broadway in Rock of Ages as Sherrie. Her other theater credits include Justin Love and The Fix. Angel appeared on Broadway in Hairspray as Link Larkin. He also starred on ABC’s Making The Band, which chronicled the formation of his multi-platinum recording group O-Town, and MTV’s There and Back, which documented the release of his debut solo album Soundtrack to Your Life.
In addition to St. Louis and Angel, new castmembers for the tour will include Kristine Zbornik as Madame Morrible and John Davidson as the Wizard. They join a cast that features Laurel Harris as Elphaba, Emily Behny as Nessarose, Michael DeVries as Dr. Dillamond and Lee Slobotkin as Boq.
A vivid reimagining of the classic The Wizard of Oz, Wicked spotlights the untold stories of Oz’s most famous characters: the Wicked Witch of the West and her unlikely friend, Glinda the Good. The show follows the tale of green-skinned Elphaba through the life-changing events that eventually label her “wicked.” Fun for the whole family, Wicked’s Grammy-winning score features songs like “The Wizard and I,” “Popular” and “Defying Gravity.”
Wicked is currently playing at the The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts in Hartford, CT through November 23.
